    Oh ... at first glance was hopeful the official SD MPEG-4 spotbeam local labeling process had started again after having been inexplicably stalled at Mkt. 165 for the past two weeks now with the count having increased by 4.

    But I see the HD MPEG-4 count should have dropped by 4 if that were the case.

    So, oh well ... still no progress on that front I guess then ...

    Probably whatever they are doing that had the NOTES0 stuff as a side effect has been put on pause due to attention going to the Directv Now rollout, or maybe because of the holidays.

    Wonder why sometimes posts are squeezed into narrow lines like the above in this new forum? Seems to happen randomly...

    The chart says that Duluth MN is on 99s t19 A1B7, but A1B7 is on 103s. Anyone know where is really is?

    On 99(s) ...

    The Ka-lo band spotbeam payloads on D11 at 99W and D12 at 103W are the same design, but aimed at different spots on the earth.

    So there are two spotbeams designated as "A1B7", but the one from D11 at 99W covers the Duluth-Minneapolis-Mankato markets. And the A1B7 spotbeam from D12 at 103W covers the Fargo-Sioux Falls markets.

    Check out the Beam Footprint Library HERE and it will make sense. Start with the TPN_Map and trace any channels in question to -first their source satellite and -second to the source beam from that satellite. With that information, you can jump to the Beam Footprint Library get a real sense of the signal coverage for your home geography.

    This week we begin a new approach to describing changes since the previous week’s posting. Only a high level commentary is provided for significant changes. But complete details are provided in an attached Excel named Weekly_Analysis.

    The Weekly Analysis Excel provides four categories of changes: ADD, REMOVE, RENAME and REMAP. While there is more detail than many will need, there is a great deal that can be learned.

    Please question anything that does not seem clear. Some examples:

    A channel that changes from Active to Offline is no longer available for viewing, but will be listed under REMAP because it has changed to Offline, but is still in the database. But a channel that is no longer available for viewing because it has been deleted from the database will be listed under REMOVE.

    Remember an asterisk (*) preceding a channel name indicates a channel in Test.
    So a “new” channel for example, will show under RENAME if it changes from *MySports to MySports, that is - it has transitioned from *Test to Active. But if that channel becomes Active without going through *Test status, MySports will show under ADD.​

    There is much to learn. Enjoy

    Wow, finally some movement on completing the SW1 to D14 migrations! If they finally migrate off SW1 for the US, it will be interesting to see if CONUS tpns 1-8 appear on 103ca coming from D15.

    I believe the spot beams on SW1, other than PR will be moved to D14 soon. I won't try to quantify "soon". Test channels on D14 are all defined for all of the stations involved. Amarillo and and Beaumont have been defined as test channels for a long time. The rest came up in the last 8 days. I have reports of strong signals from Portland from D14 tpn 4. Like you, I expect to see some D15 tpns in the SW1 spectrum show up after the migration. IMHO, the first channels to show up there will be mirrors of the International channels on 95W.

    That sure would make a lot of sense. Mpeg4 versions of the internationals there would be so much better for installers.

    Yeah, using those for 95W mirrors would make sense, given how long they are taking to get reverse band going. They could even move the 4K off 99ca if they still aren't ready for reverse band for some reason, and free up some transponders on 99ca for more HD.

    Especially since they showed off a legacy reverse band LNB at Revolution - Scott posted a photo on the other site. Interesting layout, with the extra two outputs sort of offset from the regular four. I still wonder how the tone/voltage will work for those. I'm kind of thinking they will be 18v/13v no tone, since that's what all the existing polarity lockers output. They'll have installers verify "which" 18v/no tone and 13v/no tone they are connecting via the presence or absence of 101 tpns.

    Adding mirrors of 95W would avoid having to diplex 95W into the 18v/no tone line from the legacy reverse band LNB (assuming there were no SD only receivers connected to any switches it went to)
